I've lived all over the world.
I've gone to brilliant schools and learned wonderful, life-changing things.
I've worked at magical places with amazing people who have mentored me and taught me to do what I could never have dreamed of doing.
I've helped bring incredible ideas to life for iconic brands and helped create beautiful work.
I met a brilliant woman, married 'up' and we made a crazy and awesome little boy.
I am a lucky man.
I work at the Freeman Company in the Design Group reporting to Bruce Mau (Chief Design Officer). We are tasked with looking at the entire Freeman ecosystem in a different way and building a new model of design-led thinking across every vertical of the business that will deliver new, innovative and unique experiences for our clients and I head up the Creative Leadership across all of our top opportunity accounts
My road here hasn't ever been straight or clear. I attended UC Berkeley, where I studied Political Economics with an eye to law school but after a side gig translating clips from Arabic and French into English for an independent documentary film, I fell in love with storytelling and filmmaking.
After a couple of years learning the craft, I was fortunate enough to spend 7 amazing years at Industrial Light & Magic (basically being paid to go to the world's greatest film school.) Ultimately, I left ILM to work as a freelance commercial director, visual effects supervisor, and creative director, and then, a few years back, I switched to the agency side of things in an effort to get more involved in the essential elements of brand experience design.
